GRANT AUTHORITY PROCESS APPROVED 3-7-12 LMS
The Salmon City Council has officially approved Resolution 2012-1 which defines the process required to authorize a grant application. The resolution was developed and recommended by the councilís Finance Committee Team.
Councilman Jim Bockelman is the Finance Committee chairman and in a March 7 report to the council he reported on other matters discussed during the teamís February 29 meeting.
He said City Finance Director Amy Fealko has been researching the cityís best investment options. Bockelman said Fealko is developing a prospectus on the investment options she has identified and will be presenting it to the Finance Team.
Costs are being researched on two Capital Investment Projects presented by Fealko. The projects identified were from lists supplied by all city department heads. A third potential Capital Investment project has been referred to the Parks and Recreation Team for further research.
Bockelman said the Finance Team discussed the fees being charged for the use of city facilities. An ordinance with the suggested fee increases is being drafted and will be presented to the City Council for study. When approved, a public hearing on the cityís fee schedule will be held.
The Finance Team discussed the wording of a maintenance agreement between the city and the Hockey Association for its care of the public ice skating rink. The original agreement contained a monthly rate of $1000 for the three month season. The new version simply states the city will pay the association $3000 for the season.
Later in the council meeting the arrangement was discussed again and on a unanimous roll-call vote the council approved payment for the 2011-2012 skating season.
Payments are made to the Hockey Association upon delivery of approved itemized invoices.
The due date for submitting invoices from the season had previously been by the end of February. In the new agreement, the deadline for submission of invoices has been extended until March 31. An official vote on the rewritten agreement has been placed on the councilís March 21 agenda.
The Finance Team also discussed removing the liability insurance clause included in agreements with the baseball and softball associations. It determined that under the cityís insurance umbrella the requirement is a double insurance and a financial burden for the associations. The team recommended removing the clause and the council will consider that recommendation during its March 21 meeting.
The next meeting of the Finance Committee Team was scheduled for 11 A.M. on March 13 in the Sacajawea Center meeting room.
